The Lakewood Chapel — one of our city’s most beloved architectural treasures — is an intimate setting that seats about 160. Because of its incredible beauty and historical significance, it is a popular place for end-of-life ceremonies, weddings, concerts, tours and other celebrations of beauty, art and remembrance. See what others say about the Music in the Chapel concert series.

 

Dedicated in 1910, the Chapel was modeled after the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul by prominent Minneapolis architect Harry Wild Jones. Its 10-million piece mosaic interior, created by New York designer Charles Lamb, features a 40-foot high dome ringed with stained glass windows and 12 mosaic angels. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Chapel is one of the finest examples of Byzantine mosaic architecture in the country.
